Old Pain I’m used to: the tightness in my hips when I don’t stretch in the morning, the pressure where my legs meet my back when I walk too far. It’s not that I don’t feel it; it’s just been there for so long that I know not to get nervous about it anymore. New Pain is where it gets scary because it stops having a name. I can’t immediately catalog it or diagnose it as benign. At best, disability allows you to create a tenuous peace with your body, and anytime it decides to violate that mutual agreement can be terrifying. You take the time to figure it out — what it likes and dislikes, where it functions best — and stick to that routine, until New Pain reminds you that you’re never quite going to have this figured out."
Wow this is a really helpful way to conceptualise this. I always have a hard time with that question, does it hurt? Well yes, but it has hurt the same way for the last 14 years so no, not really? But then if I get a new kind of pain, even if its not that bad, it can make me quite panicky because I don’t know what it is or how to control it.
I’ve tried to get out but they just keep dragging me back in.
